Well, the day after our sale in June 2017 when we were in tip top condition, we spent a very interesting day with Josh and Brittany Comninellis from the American Angus Association’s “I am Angus” team.
You can catch up with this little bit of Angus history through YouTube - “I am Angus, Fabric of our Forebears”.
In November 2017 we met up with Angus friends at the Fort Worth AAA convention before moving up to Louisville Kentucky for Tom Burke’s induction into the prestigious Saddle and Sirloin Club, where you know who was one of the speakers.
During our trip to Australia (to give them back their flu) in January of this year, Geordie spoke on the local radio in Toowoomba, Queensland about the re-introduction of Native Angus cattle in Australia.
So some night you are having difficulty sleeping…
Onyx Park, Eumundi, Queensland with Susan and John looking over Dunlouise Native Angus calves; their first batch.
Followed by a little Ferrari fun -
Next stop in Australia was to Bontharambo to stay with Mary, Dane and Ingrid and huge fun I hope was had by all! The rich history of this family and their cattle was a feast for the eyes (and Mary is a tennis enthusiast too so we got to see the Australian Open finals as well)
And whilst we were in Australia we took part in the Howley family’s Open Day for their Beef Week. He found another chap to chat with; this time a reporter from the Stock & Land farming paper, who wrote up a delightful article.
There was just no escape, from Geordie or the heatwave.

Our full and dusty day, which included visitors from around Australia and even one breeder from New Zealand, was rounded off with Joy’s AI man giving a rousing performance on the pipes!
